For what it's worth, I do tend to talk (or should that be 'commentate') when I have passengers on board. Especially my better half, as she's a nervous flyer and having...

My very first thought when I read your first paragraph was - Oh god, not another one... And I mean that in the sincerest way possible. Much as I loved reading Duke's stories, it was always...

Gainesy - I stand to be corrected, but I was always under the impression that it was t'other way round, Jag got a Phantom.
